Just announced today: Avatar will be publishing a series of ten extra variant covers for Providence #11. This new limited edition set are “Century” variant covers drawn by Raulo Caceres, artist of Moore-curated anthology Cinema Purgatorio‘s Code Pru. Each cover depicts a scene from Lovecraft fiction. Each Century issue retails for a whopping $39.99, with the set of ten retailing for just $285. While supplies last, purchase Century variants at Comics Cavalcade.

The Century covers bring the expected total of Providence covers to 99. There are twelve issues with seven regular variations (regular, Dreamscape, Pantheon, Portrait, Weird Pulp, Women, and Ancient Tome) plus four ghoul covers for issue #7. That is not counting collected editionsContinue reading

We’re doing some annotation of covers these days. Though Providence doesn’t come out until late May 2015, covers for issues # 1-3 have already been publicized by Avatar Press and their magazine Bleeding Cool. There are regular covers and several variant covers for each issue. The regular cover is annotated on the page for that issue (Providence #1, #2, and #3.)

We’ve given each of the Providence variants their own page: Dreamscape, Pantheon, Portrait, and Women of HPL.

Robert recently posted the annotations for the Book of the Dead and Auxiliary variant covers, each on their own page.

There are links for all of these on the right column; they’re also organized for easy perusal via our handy Alan Moore Lovecraft Comics Annotations Index page.
